Department of Stem cell and Regenerative Medicine and Medical Biotechnology  offer a specialized programme on M.Sc.in Stem cell and Regenerative Medicine since 2011 for the aspiring candidates who are interested in the field of stem cell and regenerative medicine.This programme covers basic and applied science viz.cell biology, molecular biology and developmental biology with special emphasis on stem cell biology. The University has successfully completed 8 batches of M.Sc. in stem cell and Regenerative Medicine. The two year course is designed in such a way that along with the basic interdisciplinary subject knowledge of life science  subjects. Students are also skilled in stem cell techniques. Students also work in DYP Hospital in close association of Doctors and medical students to understand the importance of stem cell in medical problems.The university organizes frequent industrial visits, webinars, workshops and guest lectures by Indian and foreign Scientists. The department has highly qualified faculty with internationally reputed research recognition. The Department also has MOU with world class Universities which helps student’s exposure to global platform.
